    [02] ARCHBISHOP OCCUPIED AREAS MONASTERY

    The Primate of the Church of Cyprus, Archbishop Chysostomos II, crossed to the northern Turkish occupied part of Cyprus, to visit the holy monastery of Apostle Andreas, located in the Karpass Peninsula, on the northeastern tip of the island.

    This is the first time the Archbishop has crossed into the occupied areas since the 1974 Turkish invasion. The Archbishop, accompanied by the bishop of Karpasia Christoforos, crossed the dividing line from Saint Dometios crossing point without stopping for any ``formalities``. During his stay in the occupied areas, his car is escorted by a vehicle of the so-called police of the occupation regime.

    Chrysostomos` first stop was the Holy Monastery of Apostle Varanvas, where he visited the tomb of Varnavas, the founder of the autocephalous Church of Cyprus. He expressed hope for the speedy reunification of the island.

    [03] FM OF OMAN - CYPRUS ISSUE

    Foreign Minister of Oman Yusuf bin Alawai bin Abdullah has expressed his countrys support towards the efforts of the government of Cyprus to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem and reunify Cyprus.

    Bin Alawai, who held a meeting Saturday in Oman with his Cypriot counterpart Markos Kyprianou, expressed his countrys disagreement with the fact that Cyprus remains divided, after the Turkish invasion of 1974.

    Kyprianou, who paid Oman an official visit at the invitation of Yusuf bin Alawai bin Abdullah, briefed his counterpart on developments regarding the UN led Cyprus talks, aiming at reaching a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    He also conveyed a personal message of friendship and cooperation on behalf of President of Cyprus Demetris Christofias to the Sultan of Oman Qaboos bin Said.
